Today more than 1,000 schools are taking part in BBC News School Report, giving 11-16 year-old students the chance to make their own news reports for a real audience. At Freebrough Academy, 16 students from Year 8 & 9 are acting as news reporters for the day, writing news articles and recording news reports.
Our March issue of the Freebrough Flyer, a 12 page supplement in the Coastal View & Moors News is now available to view online. To view, please click the thumbnail of the front page of the flyer to open a PDF version. The flyer includes lots of great news stories about what has been happening during the first term of the academic year in Freebrough Academy, Post 16 @ Freebrough and our feeder primary schools. Also included are our Superstar Students for each faculty and we hope that parents/carers will congratulate their child on the recognition of their hard work and effort.
Thank you to all the staff members and primaries who contributed, the next edition of the Freebrough Flyer will be available to read in June 2016.
